    Pioneering director J. J. Abrams has delivered an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek into darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

    What made the experience of listening to Star Trek: Into Darkness the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the extra content that had been cut from the movie - similarly to the novelization of the first movie.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator - Alice Eve is a good enough actor, but I feel that she was "miscast" in being the narrator. The way she narrated both "Harrison" and "Admiral Marcus" made me think that they were being cast as an "mirror universe version of Katharine Hepburn" and the overacting was almost painful.
